99-year subscription not showing up

January 10, 2012

We’re glad to see that a lot of you are taking advantage of our limited 99-year subscription offer. Some of you that had subscriptions from before this offer expressed their concerns that the 99-year subscription doesn’t appear in your Subscription/Voucher screen, displaying the previous subscription instead.

We just wanted to tell you not to worry. Your new 99-year subscription will appear when your previous subscription expires. If it doesn’t, log out of the application and log in again. If you are concerned that your 99-year subscription was somehow not activated on your account, either visit the My Vouchers section of the SportyPal Store (if you bought a voucher code) or ask us to check.
Note: the 99-year subscription is no longer available. While it may appear in the store due to a bug, you can no longer buy it.

The missing MTB icon (and it’s less-frequently-noticed Road-cycling counterpart)

July 13, 2011

Some of you have been commenting on us removing the MTB (mountain biking) icon from the selectable activity types in SportyPal Pro/v2. We haven’t removed anything, nor is this a bug. Road-cycling and MTB are only available if you have an active trial or SportyPal Pro subscription.

SportyPal Summer Competition is on!

July 13, 2011

If you’ve visited lately, you may have noticed that a new SportyPal competition has started. Click the banner below to enter the competition:

SportyPal Summer Competition

We’re giving away 5 Sony Ericsson XP110 experience packs, 3 SE MW660 Stereo Bluetooth Wireless Headsets, and 10 one-year SportyPal Pro subscriptions. Once signed in, to get a chance to win one, all you have to do is make and upload workouts from now until September 21. Each public upload grants you competition tickets, and each ticket increases your chances of winning.

Some of you have been asking why you don’t seem to have any tickets, even though you’ve signed in and have been uploading workouts. For a workout to count towards your competition points, you need to set its visibility level to “Everyone”. Also, to prevent abuse, GPX uploads won’t get you any competition tickets.

To set the default visibility level for new workouts, go to My Profile -> Privacy options, select “Everyone” in the “My workouts can be seen by” box, and click the Save Preferences button.

My Profile

My Profile

To set the visibility level for workouts that have already been uploaded, open the workouts list, mark the workouts for which you would like to change the visibility levels, click the Privacy button and select Everyone from the “Share with” pop-up box.

Good luck!

Installing SportyPal on your BlackBerry

May 5, 2011

Some of you have been asking for instructions on how to install SportyPal on your BlackBerry. It can get a bit confusing if you’ve never done this sort of thing before. Here’s what we usually answer when asked for installation instructions:

By far the easiest way to install SportyPal on a BlackBerry would be to visit using your device’s browser and follow the instructions there to install SportyPal over the air.

If this is not an option, then you need to download the COD and ALX files for SportyPal from the SportyPal download page for BlackBerry. You can then install SportyPal using the BlackBerry Desktop Manager. This link leads to a pretty useful guide on how to install anything on a BlackBerry. In this case, you should scroll down to the “Installing Third Party Software Via BlackBerry Desktop Manager” part.

That should be all the info you need to install SportyPal on your BlackBerry. If you feel that we’ve left something out of this guide or that a different set of steps apply to your BlackBerry model, please let us know.
